Danny Burstein in Lead ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ Role on Broadway

Danny Burstein

Broadway’s next Tevye will be Danny Burstein.

Producers of the upcoming revival of “Fiddler on the Roof” said Thursday the Tony Award nominee of such shows as “Golden Boy, ” ”Follies” and currently “Cabaret” will play the milkman struggling to maintain his beloved traditions.

The Tony Award-winning musical about a Jewish milkman from the Ukrainian village of Anatevka is based on stories by Sholom Aleichem. It centers on Tevye, a poor Orthodox Jew with five rebellious daughters.

The original production in 1964 starred Zero Mostel and had an almost eight-year run, offering the world such stunning songs as “Sunrise, Sunset, ” ”If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.” It features lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, music by Jerry Bock and a story by Joseph Stein.

The new revival will be directed by Tony Award-nominee Bartlett Sher, who directed Burstein in the revivals of “Golden Boy” and “South Pacific.” The production will also feature choreography by Hofesh Shechter, based on original conceptions and choreography by Jerome Robbins.
